I like to think of them as the rally wheels, but yes the are the 15 spokes.

I was just hoping that since the other three were documented already Ford would be cool and help me out.


I might as well just get these and leave the Ford 17s as winter tires lol.






(Pics taken from tire rack and these arn't the right bolt pattern but it would be the same wheel)



And wrap them with these?

Wheel question.

I know I have seen the 2nd gen. SES wheels peeling, and I have already had Ford replace three but the forth one is peeling and has gone to sh!t, my car is no longer under warranty, and I think Ford oughta take care of it. Do I have a valid point, or am I gonna have to buy a new wheel outa pocket?
